PROC16 — Transplant Recipients

Sheet Name

Canadian Organ Replacement Register (CORR) — Transplant Recipients by Organ Type and Province of Treatment, Canada, 2006 to 2015

Data Source

Canadian Organ Replacement Register, Transplant Recipients by Organ Type, 2006 to 2015, Canadian Institute for Health Information.

Methodology Notes
 
Data from Quebec was not included for this table because of significant under-reporting.

Year refers to calendar year.

The number of transplant recipients includes recipients of deceased and living donor organs, unless otherwise specified.

The number of transplant recipients will be less than the number of transplants, as some patients received more than one transplant/more than one organ. Note that kidney–pancreas transplants are not included under kidney-only or pancreas-only transplants.

Not all types of transplants are performed in each province.

Data Quality Notes

CORR is a longitudinal database, following patients over time. Reporting centres may submit changes/updates for any particular year on an ongoing basis. As a result, data is subject to change and may differ from previously published reports.

This data comes from transplant recipient–level data provided by transplant programs and organ procurement organizations across the country. It may differ from the data provided in e-Statistics on Organ Transplants, Waiting Lists and Donors, a report that is based on aggregate counts provided semi-annually by organ procurement organizations.

An overview of missing data can be found in Data Quality Documentation for Users: Canadian Organ Replacement Register, 2006 to 2015 Data.
